1 frozen banana*
¼ cup milk**
2 dates, pitted
1 tbsp raw cacao powder, or unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup pecans
Toasted coconut flakes
- Place the liquid in the blender first, then place everything else in the blender (not the optional toppings) and blend until smooth. I use my tamper to make sure everything gets pushed down. Remember, there is not a lot of liquid in this, so you will need to give the blender a little assistance.
- Scoop into bowls or glass cups and top with optional toppings.
Makes 2 servings (Note: The blender will blend better if you double the recipe and make 4 servings at a time, and you can freeze the servings you are not using. Simply put in serving dishes, cover and freeze.)
*When my bananas are on their last legs (lots of spots but not black), I cut them into pieces (about 6 pieces each banana) and place on a lined tray and throw in the freezer. When the pieces are frozen, I place them into bags, ½ banana servings. Then I can use them in smoothies or for this treat. Freezing them in ½ banana servings makes it very usable!
**May substitute non-dairy milk, almond or coconut beverage.
Note: Nutritional analysis does not reflect optional toppings.
